It's A Friendy Friday With A Exciting Bit Of Twilight News...


Hey... So, I have one of those weeks...You know when you have a plan for everyday and you are going to get all your jobs done... and all the stuff (mostly DT stuff) that needs to be finished...Then life interferes and your husband goes away for work and leaves you home with the kids, then you go shopping and out for coffee (cause keeping up friendships is very important) and then you look at the laundry and you haven't washed in nearly a week...And the bathroom is in desperate need of some sort of cleaning and then suddenly you realise you have run out of time...Well that has been my week... So I am sort of glad it's Friday, but not at the same time...And being Friday that means it's time for Unity's


Friends With Flair....



Now, in honour of feeling like I am my kitten Jasper at the moment and chasing my tail round and round...I made this card.....Because this is exactly how I am feeling!!!

I'm Frazzled!!!



And you know what??!!.... I look exactly like this too....




So there you go.... My card for this weeks blog hop....

Probably the same place mine is, hiding under mountains of laundry. Love the card, super cute. And no gorgeous, you could never look like that...

As always, this card is executed to pure perfection! Sorry about the loads of work - once you have one load of laundry in the wash and one in the dryer, there's nothing else you can do but stamp! ;o)

Alison said...

Donna, I am SO there with ya! It has not been an easy couple of days for me either! The only thing that's gotten done are my nerves getting shot! But Your card is adorable! I thinkmy eyes look like that now too! You def. made me smile with that one!

Jen Shults said...

I used that same stamp, LOL, great minds eh? This is gorgeous Donna. I love the distressing on this, just perfect with that little rag doll and the frazzled image.

And I am so with you on the frazzled. I just can't even tell you how crazy this week has been. I vacuumed the family room last night and that felt like an amazing accomplishment. You are rocking girl, hang in there, eventually it all levels out.

Jacqueline said...

Yes...another brilliant creation by my best friend Donna!! She is beautiful even frazzled...just like you!! We are all in the same boat, I have PILES of laundry, TONS of things to do, kids to feed, etc. but we make it through and our minds are clearer and ready to make more cards!! I LOVE this Don, the papers are perfect and coloring superb! You are so talented even when you are feeling not...Love you!

Oh love this card... Another fantastic creation! I think laundry is a bad word and we should let the men do it!! I have tons to do to... Thinking my 14 year old can do some for me while I play at a craft show tomorrow. Big hugs GF!!fx

FibreJunky said...

HAHAHAHA!!! I still think they were thinking of me when they designed that stamp! Why do you think I don't usually have a real picture of myself? Because I look like the frazzled doll!!
Love your card with her. I hope your weekend is better!!

JessicaK said...

HA! For a minute I thought you were talking about MY life!! And that FRAZZLED card is the perfect description! I taught a card class tonight...and here I am at 1am blogging. Seriously?!?

LOVE the card! Those are fun fall colors. Thanks for the inspiration. I've been trying to make fall cards, but everything ends up orange and black. Too much Halloween on my mind!

I marked the Twilight hop on my calendar. Exciting! I cannot wait to see your amazing creations!
Have a fab weekend!!
